A Study of the Feasibility of Implementing the "CAMPUS" Planning Model.
Keene, T. Wayne
A study was conducted to determine the feasibility of implementing the CAMPUS (Comprehensive Analytical Methods for Planning in University/College Systems) PMS model for planning and resource allocation purposes in the University of South Florida College of Education. A description of CAMPUS PMS was developed, including the nature, output provisions, component structure, and file input requirements of the model. Model provisions and constraints were developed. Recommendations were in terms of adoption, funding, organizational participation strategy, and phase-in timetable. Feasibility criteria included management utility such as enrollment forecasting, curriculum/staff/facilities planning, financial planning/budgeting, and indirect benefits; technical characteristics such as model dimensions vs. computer capabilities required, and adaptability and flexibility; implementation considerations such as cost and time requirements for implementation, staff availability, and organizational impact dynamics. Appendices include implementation procedural steps, data elements in existing institutional operating files relevant to simulation models, and typical synthesizing reports on institutional operations.
